The skin on your hands is just as delicate as the skin on your face and it shows your age just as easily too, so itโ€™s important to take care of the skin on your hands.

The backs of your hands will show wrinkles and age spots much like your facial skin, but that doesnโ€™t mean you have to give in to these effects of aging.

There are plenty of simple things you can to do to easily take care of the skin on your hands.

None of these tips will take you too much time, but youโ€™ll be glad you put in the effort.

1. Wash Them

Washing your hands keeps them free of nasty bacteria and germs that can get into scrapes and under your fingernails, leaving you with unattractive infections.

At the same time, keeping your hands clean is an important step in the proper way to take care of the skin on your hands.

Much like you wash your face every day to remove products and slough away dead skin cells, you should do the same for your hands.

I use my facial cleanser on my hands in the shower once a day in addition to washing them after using the bathroom, before cooking, etc.

2. Exfoliate

A good exfoliation now and then is a great way to get rid of dead skin cells and residue buildup.

Think about how often you put on lotion or use your hands to apply sunscreen or make-up.

By exfoliating them now and then, you get rid of all that stuff while also getting rid of dull, old skin and leaving the youthful, fresh skin underneath shining through.

My favorite exfoliating scrub is a ยฝ and ยฝ mixture of olive oil and white sugar.

3. Wear Sunscreen

Because the backs of your hands are especially prone to aging, itโ€™s a good idea to wear sunscreen on them.

Of course, you never want to spend long amounts of time outside without your sunscreen on, but think about how much exposure they get while youโ€™re driving too.

I know that sunscreen can be greasy and uncomfortable on your hands, so I use a bit of my daily facial cream with SPF 30 in it on my hands in the morning.

The type of sunscreen you use isnโ€™t as important as just being sure to slather it on.
